Abstract

To determine whether VAM (vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal) fungi from prairie soil would alter the mycorrhizal dependence of warm- and cool-season grasses or the response of these hosts to the soil microbiota, 2-wk old seedlings of A. gerardii or K. pyranidata were planted in 6x25 cm pots containing 525 g (dry weight) steam-pasteurized soil (2 h at 80 C and allowed to cool and equilibrate for 72 h thereafter), pasteurized soil amended with 100 ml/pot non-sterile soil sievings, or non-sterile prairie soil
